Starting from January 01 of 2020 a new regulation of IMO (International Maritime Organization) reg worldwide reduce of ships air pollution will come into force. Regulation has lots of rules and factors but main issue is following – nowadays vessels can use fuel with up to 3.5% sulphur content (outside Emission Control Areas) while the new regulation will reduce the global sulphur cap to 0.5%. Subject step will significantly decrease the amount of sulphur coming from vessels in order try improving global health and environmental conditions. The same time such regulation will significantly influence of logistics cost change since owners of the vessels will have to use adjusted fuel which is mpre expensive then regular one.

* import shipments to Ukraine
– USD 200/20′
– USD 400/40′

* export shipments from Ukraine

– USD 200/40′
